Countdown to the All White Caribbean Gospel Jerk Festival!

Mount Vernon, NY - June 10, 2024 - The excitement is building as we count down to the Caribbean Gospel Jerk Festival, set to light up Brush Park in Mount Vernon, New York, on July 6, 2024. This isn't your typical jerk festival—this is an event that promises to blend the vibrant flavors of Jamaican jerk cuisine with the soul-stirring sounds of gospel music, creating an unforgettable experience for all who attend.

Organized by Mission Unite and inspired by veteran New York show promoter Dave Brown, the Caribbean Gospel Jerk Festival is poised to be a groundbreaking event. Brown, who has attended and worked at most of the large outdoor festivals in the tri-state area, saw an opportunity to create something truly unique. “Over the years, I’ve been attending and working at most of the large outdoor festivals in the tri-state area and have always been enthused and curious as to why can’t we adopt the same concept in the gospel realm,” Brown said. “Hence, in the latter part of last year we put together a team, Mission Unite, and decided we would organize a gospel jerk festival.”

A Lineup to Inspire

Unlike the usual jerk festivals that feature leading dancehall and reggae acts, the Caribbean Gospel Jerk Festival will showcase a lineup of celebrated gospel artists. Prepare to be uplifted by performances from renowned artists such as:

- Jabez

- Judith Gayle

- Odayne Rhoden

- Patrick Reid

- Emrand Henry

- Golda McFarlane

- Brother Paul

- Bridget Butcher

- Princess Tyetia

These powerful performers are set to resonate deeply with the diverse audience expected to attend, bringing a message of hope and inspiration.

More Than Just Great Food

The festival will celebrate the acceptance of jerked food by the American mainstream, which began in the 1990s and inspired a wave of shows presenting that cuisine in cities with significant Jamaican communities. From Orlando to West Palm Beach and Miramar, jerk festivals have become a beloved tradition. Now, Mount Vernon will join these ranks with a gospel-infused celebration that promises to be both flavorful and spiritually enriching.

“People, no matter where you’re from, color, or creed, are always receptive to great food and music, and when both are combined in one package, it’s exciting,” Brown added.
